Julia Bullock gives an expanded version of her recital program “History’s Persistent Voice,” which highlights the words, work, and experiences of Black American artists. The voices of those enslaved through the 1860s are placed alongside those who lived through years of sharecropping and Jim Crow as well as currently incarcerated individuals. This mixed-media concert features all-new commissioned music by an esteemed roster of American women of color including Rhiannon Giddens, Allison Loggins-Hull, Tania León, Jessie Montgomery, Camille Norment, Cécile McLorin Salvant, and Pamela Z.

History's Persistent Voice was originally commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s performance series MetLiveArts.  Inaugural performance in the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium on September 15, 2018, in conjunction with the exhibition History Refused to Die: Highlights from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation Gift.
